You need to start by having a through over view of your lifestyle. It is better to divide your life style in three different categories and evaluate it accordingly. Firstly, think about certain things like; Are you workaholic, who rarely eats at home? Do you have frequent business tours? Or seldom sits to have a proper meal. Secondly, you need to compare different food products with your medications. Your medication and your food plan are closely interrelated. Thirdly, you need to know whether you have any other medical condition that affects your diet or if you have any food restrictions (In case of vegetarians).
If you or someone you love has diabetes it is so important to eat the right foods. For most people it seems that the change in diet, that comes as part of the treatment for diabetes type 2, is one of the hardest things to cope with.

It is very similar to how a person feels that wants to lose weight and goes on a diet, most of us know that feeling too well. No more of your favorite foods to eat. Your favorite restaurant is totally out of question. Your mom's great dinners are a thing of the past.The good news is that you don't have to live the rest of your life never being able to enjoy a great meal again. Your meals do not have to be bland or boring.
The diabetes treatment should be the removal of the root cause of the disease. Health levels should be strengthened. This treatment of diabetes should be based on a diet therapy. The diabetic patient should consider that he must consider low caloric and vegetarian food. He must choose a healthy diet for diabetics which consist of natural and high quality foods. Vegetables, nuts and fruits are a must. This will form a good diet for a person with diabetes. It is always advised by health care providers that starchy and cooked foods should be avoided.
The excess starch that is absorbed by the body should be eliminated completely. This must appear as sugar in one’s urine. The digestive juices and saliva are regulated with raw starchy foods. Conversion into sugar must take place.
The undigested and unused portion of the starchy foods becomes injurious to the system. A person with diabetes should always include vegetables and fresh fruits in the diet. This should contain starch as well as sugar. Fructose is contained in fresh fruits. Hence, insulin is not required for metabolism. Diabetics can tolerate this very well. One must take in oils and fats very sparingly. This helps in lowering the tolerance for starches and proteins.
